Day 4&5
Its been such a great week with a great group! Ringo Rides, Kayaking, Chuck Challenges, Sky Fall, High Ropes, Cliff Jumps & Wall Climbimb were among the highlights of the last two days. Images and video to follow…
We’ll miss this group and hope to see them again.
A big thank you to all our wonderful teachers Mark, Caoimhe, Chuck, Eamonn, Sinead, Graham, Gavin and Colm and all the adventure activity instructors. It’s been an incredible summer and we look forward to next year!
Bye for now!
Day 3
A morning test of endurance and stamina, impossible to complete without the team working together was the Turf Challenge. A truly testing course which the students were well up for and completed with aplomb.
After lunch it was time for Orienteering and Archery and then Chuck Challenges for the evening as the sun went down over Killary.
Here are some of the images from today.


Day 2
Students woke up to a beautiful & blustery sunny day and began exploring squares, volumes & Pythagoras, building and exploring a one string guitar. Slow motion photography captured the motion of the string and frequency related maths discussed. A game of percentages, fractions and decimals also featured.
After lunch it was time to overcome any fear of heights and head to the high ropes! A quick game of Laser Combat followed.
This evening’s workshop involved building a two note keyboard using switches, transistors & coding in C.
What a day!
Enjoy the images and video from the day….


Day 1
A lovely bunch of students arrived in Connemara yesterday evening to start our last summer camp of 2016.
After orientation it was straight into our Maths of Sound Workshop with Graham exploring sound waves and how we might visually represent their characteristics with circles and trigonometry making their way into the discussion.
This morning featured the Giant Swing which involved students solving a construction puzzle and then assembling a model of the Giant Swing which was analysed and explored. At which point will the swing be at its fastest? Theories were explored and debated but there’s nothing quite like testing it yourself…
